said immigration was a very important issue, they favored obama over romney by very large margins. >> sandra, pressure on for immigration reform, not only from the asian-american community but also from the latino community? >> absolutely. i think it's an economic issue. it's an issue of rhetoric and belonging. i think it was very clear the main reason that latinos voted as well as many asian-americans for president obama was the expectation that this would happen in these coming four years. >> that was one of the first things i think people were looking at. immigration reform. definitely a front-burner issue now. thank you all for your time today. >>> and a shocker in the world of college football. both number one and number two, yeah, they lose. now the irish are the new top dog. oh, boy. up next, our flashback. it was this date nine years ago today the commonwealth of massachusetts touched off a movement that's now spread to half a dozen states. you're watching msnbc.

forgotten, the election seems like a long way in the past for some of us, but mitt romney tried to make an issue of benghazi in the hours after the attack. he jumped on the administration before we knew that four americans had been killed and that obviously backfired on him. because the information was still coming out about what happened and how deep the tragedy was. and then in the foreign policy debate, the second debate he tried to make benghazi an issue by claiming that the president hadn't called it a terrorist attack when he had used the word in his rose garden press availability on the issue. that, too, backfired. it's interesting, too, in the days following that he stopped -- mitt romney stopped talking about it. i think that is a reflection of the fact that it was an issue that wasn't working for him. and that might be a cautionary tale for the republicans who are pursuing this today. >> i think he stopped talking about it after the debate when he was called out on it. john, we have the president in thailand today asked about reaching a deal to avoid the fiscal cliff. here's w

campaigned for governor romney and was for him and disappointed when he didn't win. i'm going to take issue with the perception that people who are poor want to be. and people getting government benefits want to stay there. in my experience as a person who didn't start out on the high end of the economic spectrum on the other end as a pastor for 12 years then as a governor who worked 10 1/2 years and saw more than half the people get off of welfare rolls on to a payroll, people in this country, deep down want to work. they want dignity, responsibility. the idea that people are just delighted to be on a government handout, indicates you must not know too many of the people that i have known. sometimes people give up and they don't think there's any way out of hole. they may resign themselves the only way to survive is through government subsidies and handouts, not because they want to be there. republicans need to be able to talk to the fact of people's real dreams and hopes, which is not to be on government dependent programs but rather to be independent on their own feet living in the home

prepared for the first debate and comes out of it? >> that's one thing every since i worked for romney six years ago, if i can get this guy in everyone's living room and let them see the command of the issues he has he would be able to win and that was something we looked at preparing for the debate. this is his chance to cut through the 30 second advertising that had been bombarding people with negative information about governor rom me. i was very happy with the performance in denver but largely because as an irish man i expect the worse to happen. he was so good at getting at governor romney and i thought performance wise i started worry. but once the governor gut and he saw this opportunity to cut through that was a talking point but also very true. so i think once he had that up there and he knew he had that opportunity to talk right to voters he took it and we saw the result. >> what do you think he'll do now >> i don't know. i know he'll spend some time with family. one of the things i was struck by was when we were on the plane one of the last few days i asked him. lot of the repor

the catholic bishops who disagree with them on this issue? >> the thing about the catholic vote that just jumps up and smacks you in the face is the stark difference between white catholics and latino catholics. white catholics broke 59-40 for romney. obama actually lost 7 points among catholics. but latino catholics, that's almost a third of the 16 million catholics in america, obama actually picked up three points with that group. so if the bishops can't persuade more latino catholics to bring some of their concerns into the voting booth. they are going to be perpetually facing fourth and long to try to move the ball on things they care about. >> a football metaphor. thank you for joining us. #. >>> actor daniel craig makes venus spy look like a pretty cool job. we wanted to know how much of 007 is real and what's a myth. >>> and fast cars are whizzing around a racetrack in texas, we'll tell you why that's got formula one fans so excited. ♪... ♪... ♪... choose the perfect hotel up high! ok. don't you have any usefull apps on that thing? who do you think i am, quicken loans? ♪ at quick
